1/4. Cutaneous squamous carcinoma leading to acute abdomen after renal transplantation.

    skin carcinoma is the commonest malignant complication of renal transplantation. We report the first case of a renal transplant recipient who presented with ileal obstruction as a consequence of squamous cell carcinoma metastases to the small intestine. This complication highlights the unusual presentation of malignancies associated with prolonged exposure to immunosuppression and the need for extra vigilance in such cases.

2/4. A penny for your thoughts: small bowel obstruction secondary to coin ingestion.

    We report a case of small bowel obstruction secondary to coin ingestion. A 22-year-old woman presented to the Emergency Department (ED) with a 3-week history of abdominal pain. Upon initial history the patient denied any foreign body ingestion. Only after computed tomography (CT) scanning of the abdomen and pelvis did the patient admit to deliberate ingestion of a single united states penny coin. During surgical evaluation it was found that the coin had lodged near the ileocecal valve and an inflammatory mass had formed around the intraluminal coin, causing a 10 x 7 cm fibrous tumor to completely obstruct the small bowel. It is thought that oxidation of the coin, with subsequent exposure of its high zinc content, instigated the inflammatory cascade.

3/4. Polymicrobial bacteremia caused by escherichia coli, edwardsiella tarda, and shewanella putrefaciens.

    edwardsiella tarda, a member of enterobacteriaceae, is found in freshwater and marine environments and in animals living in these environments. This bacterium is primarily associated with gastrointestinal diseases, and has been isolated from stool specimens obtained from persons with or without clinical infectious diseases. shewanella putrefaciens, a saprophytic gram-negative rod, is rarely responsible for clinical syndromes in humans. Debilitated status and exposure to aquatic environments are the major predisposing factors for E. tarda or S. putrefaciens infection. A 61-year-old woman was febrile with diarrhea 8 hours after ingesting shark meat, and two sets of blood cultures grew escherichia coli, E. tarda and S. putrefaciens at the same time. She was successfully treated with antibiotics. We present this rare case of polymicrobial bacteremia caused by E. coli, E. tarda and S. putrefaciens without underlying disease, which is the first found in taiwan. This rare case of febrile diarrhea with consequent polymicrobial bacteremia emphasizes that attention should always be extended to these unusual pathogens.
